A redesigned cover of The Economist in English-language was published on the Twitter account of the Ukrainian leader .
Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko posted on his account on “Twitter” a picture of the cover of the final issue of the English magazine The Economist, and in the front row with world leaders was the picture of the President .
Some gifts are not perceived as a compliment, but as a personal responsibility. Incorporate it into the agenda for the holidays, — wrote the Ukrainian leader.
However, it later emerged that the original cover was a picture of the head of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and Petro Poroshenko had posted a fake picture, replacing the face of the Russian leader with his own. Moreover, The Economist has released a compilation of projections for 2016, with the Ukrainian President in 2017 being flaunted.
Users of social networks immediately ridiculed Petro Poroshenko for the fake cover.
